Tuesday night’s win at Nottingham Forest served as a timely boost ahead of the local derby at QPR on Friday and nudged the Whites into the top half of the table. It was noteworthy for another reason, however, that hasn’t been widely publicised. The 3-1 victory at the City Ground was Fulham’s 850th competitive win in the second tier of English football since their foundation.

Fulham fans are fiercely proud of their illustrious history, even if it hasn’t translated into winning a major trophy, which does tend to baffle the modern football fan. Thanks to the goals from Aboubakar Kamara, Stefan Johansen and Neeskens Kebano on Trentside, Fulham are now the sixth most successful side in terms of wins in what is now known as the Championship. They sit behind Barnsley, Leicester City, Leeds United and Hull City in the all-time list.
London’s first professional football club has enjoyed its far share of success – and Slavisa Jokanovic’s side will be chasing another victory at Loftus Road tomorrow night.
